Every song has a special story and place in Halsey’s heart. “More” is one of the most difficult songs that she ever released, because it’s talking about her miscarriage and her hope to still have a baby someday. It’s wonderful how Halsey translates such a tragic event into a lullaby that takes our breath away. The lyrics of the song cut extremely deep, and somehow leaves scars on our heart.
Interludes are often rather boring transitions between songs, but not on Manic. Halsey asked three fellow musicians to collaborate on interludes and the result is actually very dope. Upcoming singer Dominic Fike introduces himself to a big audience, Alanis Morissette does what we expected her to do and BTS’ Suga brings his own flair to the album. Even though the guest acts are quite different, Halsey manages to make them sound convincing and unforced.
